Version 2.2.3 has arrived - the last package I created had some errors, and may work depending on how it's installed, but is otherwise broken. This package fixes that problem, and installs only a single package instead of multiple. Download this one as soon as you can to replace the broken package. This will delete any existing content from your inventory, so use it up or be prepared!

Version 2.2.0 has arrived - Now supports Valdicil's Item Sorting mod! Just follow the instructions in the installer to install your preferred version.
Version 2.1.0 has arrived - a better install method for simpler updating as future DLC come out. If the installer asks you to overwrite any files, please choose "Yes to Mod" as it will only be overwriting an old file previously installed by version 2.0.x.
Version 2.0.0 is here! In honor of my miniscule achievement of having over 1000 downloads and 100+ endorsements New Recipes has been updated with, you guessed it, new recipes! I have also incorporate items found in Far Harbor for those that have it, so there will be a split in development, but I will make it as simple as possible by putting them both in one install package. So download the latest version and enjoy!
Version 1.2.0 has been released! This may not be a popular update, but I think it is a necessary one in order to maintain balance in the game - I have tweaked the drop rates of all the recipes as random loot and on all vendors to be lower than it previously was. So now you won't find as many free or paid-for foods, you'll have to craft them yourselves. From my testing, stuff still seems to pop up on vendors, but loot should appear noticeably less often. Good luck out their chefs, and let me know if I took the drop rate a little too far.[/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color]
Version 1.1.0 has been released! Now you can find these recipes on vendors and in the wild in loot containers! Let me know if this is not behaving properly, I had some strange issues with the GECK trying to overwrite some variables on me. And if it is working properly, drop me a message anyway so I know not to worry!
Version 1.0.0 has been released! I am officially out of beta with 58 or so recipes. I hope you enjoy them and find use for all of them in one form or another. I may add recipes as time permits, but I think this is a solid base that uses most of the ingredients in the game.
Version 0.9.5 has been released with some more tweaks to recipe prices and some recipes now construct more than one item to be more realistic given the recipe.[/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color][/size][/color]
Version 0.9.3 has been released with some tweaks to recipes and balancing of some prices![/size][/color]
[/size][/color][/size][/color]Version 0.9.2 has been released with some graphics fixes and some new recipes![/size][/color]
[/size][/color]Version 0.9.1 has been released with some minor bug fixes and re-balancing of some of the foods.[/size][/color]
Let me know if it's an improvement or something else. I will continue to take feedback for at least a week before I start to finalize everything and taking it out of beta into release. Thanks again for your input, it is much appreciated, and enjoy the mod!

It appears there is a minor bug that doesn't remove the old version when the new version is installed. So anyone who downloaded 0.9.0 and wants to upgrade will need to manually go into Nexus Mod Manager, delete the old version then activate the new version. My apologies, I will try to figure out what went wrong so that future revisions don't have this same issue.

New Recipes for Fallout 4

I've been playing the new survival mode for a while now, and I personally found the existing menu somewhat lacking - pretty much one way to prepare any meat and that was it. Not to mention collecting all those random wild edibles for what? Exercise? So I thought it was time to introduce a new menu that offers some variety of preparations which come with their own special effects, and put to use all those wild plants I've been stockpiling.

Now I'm rolling this new menu out to you, the greater Fallout mod audience. 50 new recipes ranging from fried molerat to authentic post-nuclear British trifle and everything in between! And for you roleplayers out there that prefer a vegan or vegetarian diet, I've included a few vegan and ovo-lacto friendly recipes that should help you manage the commonwealth.

Here's where I need you - this is my first mod, so there may be some unknown bugs I've introduced. I've tested it locally, but I just can't test it against all the mods that exist in the community. I don't expect anything to pop up, but you never know...

I need your help to fine tune and finish the product so everyone can enjoy this mod.More importantly than any bug detection is balance - I need to make sure I haven't made any crazy-overpowered foods or created options that no one would ever make since they're a waste of time. I want this mod to seemlessly link into your gameplay and provide new and interesting ways to prepare food and utilize it.

This mod is targeted at patch 1.5 or greater.

If you're not using Nexus Mod Manager to install the plugin on patch 1.5 (version 1.5.157) -
1. Download NewRecipes.zip manually and unzip it to get to the NewRecipes.esp file
2. Copy/move NewRecipes.esp to the data folder of your Fallout 4 installation
     (if you're a steam user, move it to C:\Program Filesx86\Steam\SteamApps\common\Fallout4\Data)
3. Go to your Fallout 4 folder (just back up one from Data if you're steam) and find the plugins.txt file.
4. Edit plugins.txt and add at the end on a new line "*NewRecipes.esp" without the quotes. Don't forget the asterisk. Save and quit your editor.
     (if this is your first, then it will only have one line - "*Fallout4.esm"; just add the new line below that one)

Alternatively you can skip step 3 and 4 and just enter the game, go to the mods menu and use load order to select the mod and enable it.
That should do it!
